Hanuman Jayanti is a Hindu festival celebrating the birthday of Lord Hanuman, undoubtedly the most famous devotee of Lord Ram. He lived a celibate life serving to the greater societal causes. He is referred to as "Buddhimatam Varishttham", (excellence in intelligence, learning and wisdom). His strength, his integrity, his devotion, his righteousness, his intellect, his humility, his compassion are examples that mankind can learn from.
Hanuman was born to Anjani and Kesari on full moon day of Chaitra month. How fitting for his birthday to fall within six days of Lord Rama! Anjani and Kesari lived a very pious lives and were devotees of Lord Shiva. Hanuman was born to them as a blessing from Lord Shiva.
Hanuman's life has been portrayed in Ramayana,one of the two greatest epics. His stories are fondly told and remembered for people of all generations.
